Is this crazy?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So my SIL was talking today about her DD14 starting to date. She's imposed a "one year younger one year older" rule on her daughter. At this point I'm like "fair enough, my DD was 17 but your child your rule". and then she interrupts me to say "Well 2 days before the date he comes in for an interview (he has a form to fill out with his classes, grades, any detentions/suspensions, family contact details) and she will ask him for an ID if she thinks he's too old. Is this crazy?

This.

Filling out an actual form and calling it an interview, yeah that's extreme. But wanting to know that kind of information.... I just think that's good parenting.

 That makes sense then with her asking about the classes. The reason I say it's a little much on the detentions/suspensions is because sometime kids get in trouble for ridiculous things at school. My kids have never had any (knock on wood) but their school passes out detentions like crazy from 1st grade onward.


Quoting Anonymous:

I think she put classes as a topic to have a conversation about (seeing as she will also be chaperoning she wanted to have *something* to talk about during the car ride etc) and detentions/suspensions for if her DD is messing with a bad boy

Quoting lovenMyfamily:

Just a little. I think wanting to verify their age is okay and for a family contact, but detentions/suspensions and classes is a little over board.

Seriously? that wouldn't fly with me. if my kids have done something legit wrong they will pay the price but not for stupid reasons

Um you don't want the phone numbers of parents?

I am to have the number of all the parents when they are out with friends, this will include dates, boyfriends/girlfriends. So chances are why would have the number already.

I'm surprised this is weird.

Your SIL is nuts.  It won't work, and all she'll do is alienate her daughter.
